Believes in Cryptids/Aliens/Folklore

In an interview with Esquire, Megan Fox said

You have to understand, there I feel safe. I was raised to believe that you’re safe in God’s hands. But I don’t feel safe with myself. [...] I have seen magical, crazy things happen. I’ve seen people be healed. Even now, in the church I go to, during Praise and Worship I could feel that I was maybe getting ready to speak in tongues, and I’d have to shut it off because I don’t know what that church would do if I started screaming out in tongues in the back. It feels like a lot of energy coming through the top of your head — I’m going to sound like such a lunatic — and then your whole body is filled with this electric current. And you just start speaking, but you’re not thinking because you have no idea what you’re saying. Words are coming out of your mouth, and you can’t control it. The idea is that it’s a language that only God understands. It’s the language that’s spoken in heaven. It’s called ‘getting the Holy Ghost.’ [...] I like believing. I believe in all of these Irish myths, like leprechauns. Not the pot of gold, not the Lucky Charms leprechauns. But maybe was there something in the traditional sense? I believe that this stuff came from somewhere other than people's imaginations.... I am childlike in my spirit, and I want to believe in fairy tales... I believe in aliens… Loch Ness monster — there's something to it.... There's the Bell Witch... What distracts me from my reality is bigfoot. They are my celebrities.
Summary

Fox was brought up Catholic and Pentecostal, but now regularly attends a liberal Christian church.

Her political views basically consist of disliking anyone who is overly conservative or too religious. She has indicated a sexual attraction to President Obama.

Editorial

Megan Fox was born in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.

Fox's upbringing was heavily Catholic and she attended a Catholic school for the entirety of her education.[1]

But there's something fishy going on here. In one interview, she says:

I was raised Catholic.[2]

Very simple and straightforward, right? But in another interview, she goes into depth about the fundamentalism of a Pentecostal church she regularly attended growing up.[3] Pentecostal denominations are some of the most, shall we say, involved sects of Christianity. These are the convulsions-on-the-floor, speaking-in-tongues, healing-the-sick-onstage churches. She said:

The energy is so intense in the room that you feel like anything can happen. They're going to hate that I compare it to this, but have you ever watched footage of a Santeria gathering or someone doing voodoo? You know how palpable the energy is? Whatever's going on there, it's for real.[4]

I'm not sure the reason behind this double-speak.

However, even though she was inundated with heavy-handed religion for so long, it doesn't seem to have stuck with Fox, who now regularly attends services at a non-denominational Christian church with her husband. It would appear, as per her description, that her current church is rather liberal with its policies and recommendations, and that's a big plus for Fox. She says:

I've always been intrigued and repulsed by how divisive and hateful different Christian denominations are to one another despite their obvious commonalities and interconnections. [The church I attend is] not judgmental, does not close its doors to anybody, and has a young, active, passionate congregation, which is how I like to experience church.[5]

Despite the fact that Fox just oozes sexuality and sensuality, she seems to be a rather traditionally-minded girl who doesn't like to party[6] and enjoys her "normal" life with her husband and child.[7] She says:

Oddly you wouldn't think it, but I'm very domestic. That keeps me sane. I sort of distance myself from the Hollywood crowd.[8]

Robot Politics

Megan Fox's political views can be best understood when one grasps the nuances of the Transformers Universe. You see, a race of evil giant robots known as the Decepticons is hell-bent on taking over planet Earth and the only thing standing in their way is a race of good giant robots known as the Autobots.

Now, when Megan Fox was asked how she, personally, would handle a potential Decepticon invasion, she said she would prefer diplomatic negotiations with the Decepticon leader, Megatron, where she would make him an offer he can't refuse. She said:

I'd barter with him and say instead of the entire planet, can you just take out all of the white trash, hillbilly, anti-gay, super bible-beating people in Middle America?[9]

Well! Let's take this to its logical conclusion. She doesn't like people who are "anti-gay," which would make her "pro-gay." She doesn't like "bible-beaters" despite being admittedly religious herself. One could assume that she is quite militantly liberal, then.

Plus, she thinks Obama is sexy.[10]
